Martin Way allotments are located on two sites either side of Martin Way in Raynes Park at the junction with Bushey Road - see location map. We are one of 18 allotment sites in the London Borough of Merton and one of only 5 that are self-managed. We have over 250 plots spread across our two sites, which are identified as the east and west side plots, covering an area of over 11 acres.
We are a very active self-managed site with a committee of volunteers, with a waiting list which is relatively short compared to the council-run sites. Of the 251 plots we have 245 let. Of these 6 vacant plots, 4 are difficult to let. We have 98% of our plots let, or 99% if you do not include the difficult to let plots!
We also have a shop which is open at weekends during the growing season (Sunday during July and August), along with an adjacent accessible toilet.
If you would like to come and see us please either come along to one of our social events and introduce yourselves, come into the shop during opening hours or email us using 'get in touch'.
If you would like to have a plot and you are resident in Merton please read the Apply for a Plot page.

The next social event will be the MAGA Pumpkinfest on Saturday 22nd October starting at 4.30pm. Please note the change of date! This was changed as so many of the committee were away on the 29th.
The Summer Picnic planned for Sunday 10th July was unfortunately cancelled due to the waterlogged ground.
